Lakeville: A Natural Resource Management Activity is an educational unit that teaches students the role native, non-native, and invasive species play in ecosystems and the social significance of these ecosystems. Students are challenged to make management decisions, taking the perspectives of various stakeholders in their community into account as they attempt to address the problem of invasive species. Students then assess what effect their decisions will have on the ecosystem.
This workshop will provide hands-on training for educators to learn all components of the Lakeville activity, from initial preparation through assessment.
